“Maybe” by Machine Gun Kelly & Bring Me The Horizon
This song (“Maybe”) features some dark lyricism. For instance, in the first verse, Machine Gun Kelly speaks to ‘throwing his soul away’. And in the second, Oli Sykes talks about being ‘put out of his misery’. Furthermore, in the breakdown or bridge, Oli also refers to the addressee having ‘dug her grave’.
But all things considered, such morbid terminology is to be expected of a collaboration between these two, no matter what the song is about really. So in reality, what this piece actually centers on is the vocalist(s) being caught up in a tumultuous relationship with the addressee, his significant other.
And the titular term, which is found a few times throughout, apparently alluded to the thought processes of the narrator in relation to him contemplating the termination of this romance. Indeed the conclusive sentiment of this piece is that the vocalist has now reached the point where he is prepared to, most simply put, cut the addressee off.
